Fireflies is inspired by the Fireflies Rising shawl by Curious Handmade.  I pictured a summer campfire under a deep midnight blue sky punctuated by the light of stars and dancing fireflies. It works up as a semi-solid with lighter colourflashes spread throughout, and it pairs wonderfully with Turning Tide.

BFL Supersock is a soft, durable blend of British Bluefaced Leicester and nylon.  Bluefaced Leicester is a British rare breed sheep that produces wool that is next-to-skin soft while being resistant to pilling.  This is a smooth 4ply yarn that's just perfect for socks and mittens that are soft and hard-wearing. 

Yarn: BFL Supersock
Blend: 75% Superwash British Bluefaced Leicester / 25% Nylon
Weight: 100g

Travelknitter yarns are all hand-dyed in East London, using only professional-grade acid dyes.

I recommend that you treat the yarn kindly by hand-washing in cool water order to keep the colours looking their best.

While I do my best to capture the colours as true to life as possible, please keep in mind that computer monitors vary in how they show colours, and there will always be some variation between dye batches due to the nature of hand dyeing.
